Firm Governance

Sound governance practices and structures are foundational to engage stakeholders and demonstrate strong leadership.


[Firm Governance]


Our consulting work with your governing board is designed to help strengthen the team’s decision making processes, stay focused and responsive to stakeholders, and provide the firm with clarity on the firm’s purpose and strategy. All are unique responsibilities of an effective board.

Unique Role of the Board

A governing body plays an essential unique role in ensuring the longevity of a business. When Boards tell us that their governing process is not working well it often is a result of diluting focus from longer term strategic issues to immediate operational concerns.

Greenway has expertise in helping firm leaders align their Boards’ focus and priorities in order to leverage their unique fiduciary and ethical role to ‘direct and protect’ the firm.

Alternative Business Structures

We help firms to efficiently and methodically delineate and weigh the pros and cons of
alternative business structures and organizational forms and the interrelated impacts on
staffing, leadership models, and workflow processes.

Armed with a customized set of goals and benchmarks, an organization can then refine
organization structure that is optimized for the way in which they conduct business.
Greenway helps simplify owners’ consideration of the interrelated financial, tax, and legal
elements of alternative corporate structures including personal corporations, C-
corporations, S-corporations, LLCs, Partnerships, and ESOPs.
